It was nice our server immediately acknowledged we were celebrating my birthday. The meal was delicious, as were the wines. They really made my birthday dessert special with a candle and birthday chocolate. There were a few other tables celebrating, as well, and we had a nice chat with them. It was a great experience overall.

The service, the setting and the cocktails at Apropos was wonderful. The food was inconsistent. The poached pear salad was not what we expected, but it was surprisingly good. The fish on the Artic Char Crudo was also tender and delicious, but the grilled pumpkin it came with was flavorless. The Pappardelle pasta was the best thing we had. The pasta itself was extremely thin and the sauce was perfection. The Cavatelli would have been good had it not had so much pepper. The side of Broccoli Rabe was inedible. It tasted raw. I literally could not chew it and there was a bizarre smokiness that didn't work at all. Whoever is in charge of cooking vegetables had a bad night.

This is the best Thanksgiving meal I've ever experienced. I love their dinners altogether, much superior to their lunches or brunches. Farm-to-table fresh, innovative cooking. I've never tasted such unique, well prepared, and seasoned veggies, especially in Westchester County. No extra fats, no heavy gravy, the chestnut stuffing consisted of real chestnuts, not seasoned breadcrumbs. Enjoying the salad appetizer, I encountered unusual veggies. The salad dressing did not overwhelm the vegies and was but delicious. The hot rolls were all homemade. The price was reasonable. I am totally impressed. And the service was attentive but not intrusive. Bravo to the chef and the staff.

I've been there before, and I'll absolutely return!
I'd give it 4-1/2 stars if I had the option -- it's just a tad short of 5...

Although the menu is somewhat limited everything we’ve had on our few visits (as locals to the area) has been very delicious. Dessert seems to be more of a dinner menu item than lunch as on our visits at lunch time there seems to be few to no options.

The service is optimal and we especially commend Ramona for both optimal service along with connecting on a personal level with her customers. She’s a true professional.

The ambiance is wonderful. There are several dining spaces that each have their own unique qualities. One offering the view of beautiful sunsets over the Hudson River. The other enveloping you in a dark more intimate warmth or in summer being able to enjoy the beautiful courtyard gardens while dining alfresco. There’s also a private dining room and a small and friendly bar area.

Had dinner last night, Tuesday, so could not see a view, and it was not very busy. Greeted warmly and were given a choice of seats. Very good wine list with selections at every price range. Great oysters and crispy porchetta appetizers. Very nice mignonette with the oysters and the porchetta was fatty/salty/crispy delicious.... I wanted more! Dinner was the crispy polenta over a squash succotash, super crispy and delicious, the cavatelli exceeded any expectations I may have had. A super creamy cherry ice cream was the cherry on top. Not rushed, service was very good.

What a hidden gem. Apropos is nestled within The Abbey, a gorgeous old convent overlooking the Hudson. Beautiful grounds, beautiful building. The food was delicious. Bone marrow, flatbread, chicken, cappelletti, pork chop, steak...all so delicious. And the old bay french fries, you could make a meal just out of them. We sat in a little room overlooking the gazebo/river and it was very quiet. The waitstaff was wonderful, very friendly. Definitely going back and would highly recommend.

This is a beautiful space and the waitstaff was friendly. However, our drinks came quite late and one person in our party did not receive her first drink until after the appetizer arrived. The food was pleasant but bland. Another person ordered a second drink but it never appeared. The restaurant would have made a lot more money and we would have enjoyed our experience more if they spaced out drinks, apps and main meals better.

The staff was amazing!!! Made us feel like royalty. The ambience was relaxed. Our only complaint is one the desserts was very disappointing. It was not only small, but for the price, it definitely should be more decadent. It tasted like a dry knock off of a Hostess Suzy Q with marshmallow puff. Perhaps remove that from the menu and replace it with something more appeasing. Keep the size if you must, but when serving a chocolate for dessert in restaurant of this standard,maybe something more sinful that only a bite or 2 would be enough. The grain pilaf served with the Chicken entree was overwhelmed with vinegar. Did not compliment the savory chicken 1 bit! Maybe serve it with a risotto or a tropical jasmine rice pilaf. Other than that, the night was a success! And mostly thanks to the wait staff... Joyful, funny, light hearted, made me feel like I was better than family. Again, Royalty!!! Thank you.

Another friend and I took our friend for her birthday to Apropos Restaurant at The Abbey Inn. It was a surprise as to where we were taking her. We had her sit in the front seat as we drove up the road to the Inn. She was amazed at the view of the Hudson, loved the garden that we ate outside in and was so impressed with the menu. We all wanted to order everything. Erin, our waitress, was an absolute doll. She was knowledgeable, friendly and full of information about the Inn. We loved our visit for lunch and will certainly be back as soon as we can.

Our first visit and we will go back. Beautiful setting, service was good and all of the wait staff were friendly. The char was perfectly cooked and the chickpeas and local greens a good accompaniment. The tagliatelle with golden tomatoes, chanterelles and blue crab suffered from serious over salting which was unfortunate as otherwise it would have been a stellar dish. The dessert - warm oat crumble, peach and berry compote with whipped ricotta was shared. I liked the ricotta with the crumble and compote but my dining companion would have preferred a sweeter less tangy topping.

The food at A Propos was superb from start to finish. The service was okay, not great. The waiter was very nice but kept lowering his mask below his nose and even sat down with us to go over desserts with his mask totally off his face. This made us all uncomfortable but we didn't say anything. The atmosphere is a bit stuffy but, again, the food was out of this world!
It was quite empty in the room where we were and our plates weren't always removed before the next thing was brought to the table. This seemed a bit odd given the price and quality of the food.

The views are outstanding. Early summer get you the best sunsets, late the sunsets are hidden in the trees.
Parking is easy, food is excellent but the menu choices could be wider. Cocktails are well done and fairly priced, all labels are available.
Plating is excellent.
Wait staff very friendly, trained and good.
We had the oysters that came with a terrific strawberry whatever that worked exceptionally well, strange no small seafood forks.
Striped bass special well prepared and tasty.
North Atlantic Char cooked to perfection, delightful.
Bread & butter comes with an extra charge, really

Stopped after an Army football game (30 minute ride away. This new restaurant is still working to recover from Covid but is able to do everything well. Food was unusual in a very positive way, service was outstanding (we were the first ones to dine that night), and the location was amazing - on a hill overlooking the Hudson River. Even though we live 80 miles away we plan to find ways to return.

As the manager put it as an “oversight”, the server forgot to ring in all of our food- FOR OVER AN HOUR. We watched every table sat after as recieve bread, salad, entrees, etc as we sat there. Even more insulting, our server asked us as at the 40 minute mark if we received our food yet, when clearly we did not. The first item to reach the table was an appetizer that was not for our table- which they picked up and brought to the right table. Don’t worry, even taking COVID out of the equation, someone else’s food sitting in on the wrong table for an undisclosed amount of time then NOT discarded is concerning within itself. A dining experience lasting over 2 hours as manager and a plethora of staff members gawked at as and referred to us at the “corner table” with no food was embarrassing. Even added to the “experience” was hearing the team members fighting in the kitchen. Our server asked another server for assistance with an ice bucket and his response was “NO TIME” and walked away. I am unclear what is more embarrassing, the manager and staff at the establishment OR ourselves for not walking out and leaving such a horrifying experience. Just to add insult to injury, we were celebrating our 12 year wedding anniversary.

The food was great but the staff seemed overwhelmed. Our server forgot part of our order (luckily the portions were substantial enough that we still left more than satisfied) and gave me an alcoholic cocktail when I clearly specified that I wanted it as a mocktail--a misstep that could have been comped.

The restaurant found at the end is very attractive outside nice view of the Hudson river. Beautiful architecture and grounds. The dining room where we sat was very dark. Overall ambiance wasn’t too appealing But we couldn’t change to another area. Would have preferred to eat in the patio that was very attractive. We ordered oysters, a branzino and Arctic char.
We returned the oysters because they were not fresh. Presentation on both entrées was very sad looking. We return the broccoli Bob and ask for a new one. Neither dish had much flavor to speak of.
Unfortunately the staff attending to us were new and therefore we cannot be too hard on them. She did the best she could it was actually very attentive.
This was to be a special occasion for our wedding anniversary which we have a tradition of going to historic inns known for their food.
We missed the mark with the apropos restaurant. We have been doing this for 38 years. And the apropos will rank as one of the lowest not to be recommended as a go to place for fine dining.
It will do for any place where you want to pay more than you should and really don’t care about what you eat Or the overall experience.

Lovely dinner on our first evening at the Abbey Inn. Our party of two enjoyed the mussels with frites and we shared the Grilled Peach with ricotta and roasted hazelnuts for dessert. The latter is on the appetizer menu but it’s sinfully delicious.
